Single as a slice of cheese

That's me. Funny when I say it as I love my independence. The solo thing just suits me. But honestly? Lately I've been thinking a man on scene might not be such a bad thing. Yeah, I can see it. Maybe.

My friend Dan told me on the phone last night that I like the take charge manly kind of men. I couldn't argue with him. Strong broad that I am I've been known to devour a few men in my time and spit out the bones. No lie. They'd tell you. Funny because several of my ex loves still call from time to time. Must have done something right. I am not without my charms, after all, and I don't swim in the shallow end of the pool. And then there's the whole passionate woman thing. Yeah, there is that.

I've been spending time with my married Friends Marcia and David lately and they make me stop at times and take pause. Those two cats make me think it might be possible again. They just fit. I love being around them. And she's an outspoken chick like me. Same goes for my cousin Harry and his wife Patty. She's like me too. Fiery woman with an opinion. I guess there are actually men out there who can handle women like us. Good to know. I thought they had boxed them all up and sent them to China.

I once flew all the way to Italy to then not see the man I thought I was in love with. I'm a hopeless romantic. Well, I was. Am I now? Thinking...

I was married once. He was no match for me. It wasn't so bad, until it was. Don't feel the need to do it again, but you never know. Stranger things have been known to happen. Hell, I'm still always amazed when a toenail falls off after I whack a toe and it grows right back like nothing happened. It's happened more than once to me. I guess in life things can happen more than once. My toenails are my life lessons. I pay attention to funny things.

In my yoga teaching I talk a lot about balance. I am a firm believer in living life fully and unabashedly. I love all the yummy stuff in life. Why go without? Make love, drink wine, eat chocolate, take naps and move around from time to time. The more you deny yourself something the more it owns you. I'll have none of that.

So, single as a slice of cheese. Thinking...

I WILL HAVE NONE OF THAT! ;-)

Making love, wine, chocolate, placing yourself somewhere new occasionally ... oh you are SO right my friend! New place, new scene, new people -- leads to new chances, new adventures, and oh so many new possibilities to try all the tasty little morsels available.

Oh yes it exists for women like us, I'm sure of it -- even if it is just for a little bite ;-)

The key to a happy life? Stay open... All the good stuff happens when we do.

Your post felt like a massage to me today, of all days, on my fiftieth birthday. Thank you for the gift!!

Ah, happy 50th my sweet friend! And may I just say that I think you're absolutely fabulous...

Maria:

Oh hey Diana, a happy 50th to you! I've got my big 5-0 coming in a few weeks too -- I'm hoping our friend Kathy will come up with just as fiery and wonderful a post on my birthday as well ;-)
